The Mediterranean Basin, a region with a unique ecological landscape and deeply rooted social characteristics, has untapped potential to contribute to the forest sector’s leading role in the global bioeconomy.

EFIMED aims to elevate this potential by bridging the gap between forest-related science, policy, and implementation through three core objectives:

  • Promote research and networking related to Mediterranean forests, forestry, and forest products
  • Support scientific capacity building and providing science-based information to policymakers at the Mediterranean level
  • Provide a forum for Mediterranean forest researchers and practitioners to exchange knowledge and foster innovations in forestry and related sectors.

Through the EFIMED Network, which connects forest researchers, policymakers, and practitioners across the Mediterranean, and numerous projects based in the region, EFIMED focuses on improving the resilience of ecosystems and communities by promoting and creating sustainable value from Mediterranean forested landscapes.
